Dana White suggests Fight Island judges could be sacked as he admits Max Holloway was robbed of win against Volkanovski

UFC chief Dana White has hinted that the judges who scored Alexander Volkanovski victorious in his fight against Max Holloway could be SACKED.

David Lethaby was the only one to score it in favour of Holloway, with MMA Fighting revealing the scorecards.

That judge gave the former featherweight champion rounds one, two and five.

The two other judges, Mark Collett and Clemens Werner, scored it for Volkanovski, both giving him the last three rounds.

In the post-fight presser, White was in no doubt who should have got the decision.

He said: “You can’t leave it to these guys. We’ve got some bad judging.

“I’m sure [Holloway] is devastated. Did anybody here score it for Volkanovski? Anybody? Nobody in the media?

"I don’t know. We’ll have to figure it out.

“Looks like we’ve got to tighten up our refs and judges here on Fight Island."

And many UFC fans seemed to agree with White.

One wrote: “Max Holloway just got ROBBED.”

Another said: “Rewatch that fight and you will clearly see Max Holloway won the 1st 3 rounds the Judges are a disgrace.”

A fellow viewer tweeted: "Absolutely robbed Holloway… What a disgrace.. Volkanovski is a G but no chance he won that.."

And another said: “Wow! They gave that fight to Volkanvski…. that was a robbery straight up. Max Holloway had the first 3 rounds easy. What a disgrace.”
